Corero Acquisition Strengthens Network Security Offerings
Intrusion prevention system firm Top Layer Security signs deal.
According to CBR Online, Corero has acquired Top Layer Security, a provider of real-time Intrusion Prevention and Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) protection systems. Although the financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed, Corero gains a next-gen security platform upon which to build an array of network security offerings and is expected to gain access to Top Layer's employees, which include specialized engineering and technical resources, and an established customer base.
"In addition to expanding Top Layer's geographical footprint through a channel focused go-to-market model, we intend to leverage Top Layer's technology platform to develop network security offerings, such as firewall systems, to respond to the need for higher level content and application level security within the network, Montanana said.
